About

Meet Flip Robinson - your guide on the ultimate Game of Thrones®  locations tour. A man whose encyclopedic knowledge of the show  owes a lot to one crucial fact: he was actually in it! 

Flip appeared in the series as a stand-in actor and body double for House Stark’s much loved gentle giant Hodor. He was also a double for House Lannister’s feared enforcer, the towering Ser Gregor Clegane. You can see Flip in three iconic episodes in Season 6, ‘The Winds Of Winter’, ‘Oathbreaker’ and ‘The Door’ - in which the origins of Hodor’s name are revealed to amazing effect. 
 
Make no mistake then - this is a man who knows what he’s talking about. The locations are a thrill to experience in their own right. But if you’re a seasoned Thronie, each one is alive with drama and excitement: the site of a daring escape; the castle where heroes took refuge, the cave where darkness was born…A lot of them are off-the-beaten track. But with his insider knowledge, Flip knows exactly where they are. He’ll make sure you can get up close and personal with every one.
 
Between locations you’ll be travelling in Flip’s van. (Worthy of a film star, Flip’s van is an air-conditioned long wheel-base VW Transporter Shuttle.) It’s a good time to hear his behind-the-scenes stories of life on set and in the studio during the making of Game of Thrones® . He’s a mine of information on the logistics of creating the biggest TV show worldwide right here in Northern Ireland.
 
Flip is a local man -  another key ingredient in his expertise. In fact many of the  filming locations are in his own backyard. As he talks to you, you’ll find his great love of the area is contagious. He’ll also be delighted to pass on his knowledge of the geological processes that created the beautiful coastal landscape. So even if you don’t know your Dragonstone from your Dothraki, there’s plenty to discover in Flip’s company.
